To help moderators, please verify to the best of your ability that the picture you want to have is not already taken.
•Logged in using your random allocated (emailed) password at least once (i.e, your account is not marked as temporary). This is necessary to validate your email address. If you cannot remember receiving a temporary password, please use forgot password to get all info back to your mailbox.
•Please make or find an avatar that is square or nearly so, any size is fine but it will be resized to a width of 50 pixels when it is uploaded.
You are responsible for any copyright issues that may arise over use of your avatar. In case another member claims your avatar is identical, the member using it first will have precedence. Similar avatars are allowed, and an animated and static version of the same avatar are considered different.
*NOTE: If you joined after February 2002 and are a premium member, you have the ability to upload an animated avatar immediately.
